my daughter will be 8mth in 3 days and she still doesn't sleep through the night, she wakes up every couple hrs or so and wants her bottle, but she only takes a few drinks and that's all she wants. I've tried to give her a pacifier but she won't take it. what can i do? and i feed her cereal about 1/2 - 1 hr. (give or take) before she goes to bed everynight, i keep her up till at least 8:30-9:00, and i don't let her take a nap in the evenings anymore, and nothing seems to help her sleep through the night.

i will look into the self soothing methods, i'll try anything, i stay so wore out, with running and doin for 2 during the day and up every little bit at night. she used to sleep all night, or maybe wake up just one time every so often then after she was about 3 months old or so this start, i just don't understand nothing has changed, well now that i'm thinkin of it, her dad hasn't been here since she was about 3 months old at night, he got a night job and it's just me and the girls now.

i can't seem to be able to let her cry. no see eats very well, the dr. wants me to cut her back because she says for her age she eats to much, and could become come over weight. that i didn't do because she isn't over weight she's right where she is suppose to be and always has been, i figure i will let her eat till she is full, and hopefully she doesn't become over weight but if she does i will do what i have to then.

she doesn't take a pacifier, that was just something that i tryed for a few nights when she would wake up so much. i also feed her cereal and bath her around a hour or so before she goes to bed, i don't let her take a evening nap and nothing seems to be helping her sleep through the night. i keep her up till 8:30/9:00 to.

I had the same thing with my daughter she did not take her pacifier you have to find something that sooths her. With my daughter what she found was her thumb.

If your heart can take it. Let her cry it out. In a couple of nights she should sleep through the night. Or maybe she's not eating enough during the day.

I would suggest trying a different pacifier that the nipple resembles her bottles......or maybe she just has gas and needs to burp or fart..lol.......or she has become accustomed to you coming right away so maybe let her try to get herslf back to sleep and not rush in there??? Hope this helps

Maybe you should try some methods that teach self soothing... and she doesnt need to eat at night either, thats why she is most likely waking up
